The 2023 Genesis G90, Genesis’ most opulent vehicle, has undergone a significant facelift that updates it for the 2023 model year. A 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 375 horsepower serves as the car’s base engine. Instead of the 5.0-liter V-8 that was an improved engine in the 2022 model, a 409-hp twin-turbo V-6 is available, and its power is increased by an electric supercharger. Both of the G90’s powertrains are quiet and smooth, which contributes to the cabin’s ability to pamper passengers with a variety of surprise features. For example, an onboard fragrance diffuser can fill the cabin with a calming perfume while an air purifier works to prevent pollutants from outside from creeping in.
Price of the 2023 Genesis G90
Both the 3.5T and the 3.5T E-Supercharger versions of Genesis’ new flagship come with all-wheel drive as standard. Oddly, every paint color has an additional fee, and the only other choice is a first-aid accessory set. The price of the 2023 Genesis G90 3.5T is slightly more than $90,000, while the price of the 2023 Genesis G90 3.5T E-Supercharger is slightly more than $100,000, including the destination fee. The 2023 Genesis G90 is manufactured by Genesis in Ulsan, South Korea. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for it was $101,325, including the $1,125 destination fee, and it had Makalu Gray Matte paint.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
This year, the 2023 Genesis G90 has done away with its 5.0-liter V-8 in favor of a twin-turbocharged V-6 that comes in two power levels and is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The E-supercharged variant combines an electric supercharger and a 48-volt hybrid system to increase the twin-turbo V-6’s output from its 375 horsepower base engine to 409 horsepower. The 2023 Genesis G90 reached 60 mph in 5.1 seconds while using the higher-output engine beneath its hood, which is remarkably quick for such a huge sedan. The 2023 Genesis G90 has a Chauffeur driving mode designed to give passengers an extra-smooth ride, and the air suspension is an optional feature. With the more potent of the two powertrains and the air springs, the 2023 Genesis G90 provided a wonderful ride and smooth acceleration during our initial test drive.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The 2023 Genesis G90 equipped with the 375-hp twin-turbo V-6 will be the most economical model. The vehicle gets 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Choosing the 409-hp powertrain reduces those figures to 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the interstate. The G90 with the E-supercharged engine achieved 29 mpg on our 75 mph highway fuel economy test route.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
For 2023, the G90’s inside also receives a makeover, with a new layout and upscale materials that will help it compete with rivals like the Audi A8 and the BMW 7-series. Of course, luxuries like a top-of-the-line sound system and massaging front seats are also included. All models have power-operated rear sunshades, luxurious Nappa leather upholstery, and active noise cancellation to keep the inside hushed. In the back seats, you can choose from reclining and massaging positions.
Infotainment and Connectivity
On a 12.3-inch screen with navigation and SiriusXM satellite radio, Genesis’ most recent infotainment system is rendered sharply; a separate 12.3-inch screen acts as a digital gauge display. It’s unfortunate that Apple CarPlay and Android Auto require a cord; this is an unusual feature in the era of wireless connectivity. The Bang & Olufsen stereo system is standard on all versions, but the E-supercharged has an improved version with 23 speakers and a setting that mimics concert hall acoustics.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
Numerous driver-assistance features, such as automatic high beams and an adaptive cruise control system with a lane-centering feature, are included as standard equipment in every version. Important safety elements include:
- The option of forward collision warning is available, and automatic emergency braking is the standard.
- Lane-keeping assistance and the common lane-departure warning
- Adaptive cruise control that is standard and has lane-centering functionality
